Supporters of Catalonia’s disputed independence referendum gathered outside Madrid’s Teatro De Barrio on Sunday, September 17, singing songs and raising their fists.
The rally was organised by a group calling themselves “Madrileños por el derecho a decidir” (Madrid residents in favour of the right to decide) according to news reports.
It was also attended by politicians from several left-wing Spanish parties.
Catalonia’s referendum was due to take place on October 1 to ask residents of the region whether or not the want to secede from Spain and form an independent republic.
The referendum has been called “unconstitutional” by the Spanish government. Credit: Twitter/Ivan_MadRev via Storyful
